Is there a “volcano” of skin forming around the jewelry?(this extra skin isn’t tender) Is the piercing tender? Is the piercing inflamed? Is the skin darkening around the piercing?
“Yes” to these could indicate a keloid do to irritation or friction. Is the jewelry to long? Are your clothes rubbing a lot? Are you physically active? See your Piercer to find a solution…it may take time to find a comfortable solution.
